16mm colour/B & W film, with digital sound.
Filmed on the island of Crete in black & white and colour, single frame by single frame, the film denies the idealistic and bucolic view of the Greek island, and instead frantically shifts between positive and negative imagery of barbed wire, fences, animal bones, dead plants, transmission towers, broken bells, abandoned architecture, and disused portals. Manipulated field recordings of crickets/cicadas accompany the film. Screened at the London Short Film Festival in partnership with Analogue Recurring, January 18, 2015.
